Domain Life Cycle

Domain Life Cycle


gTLD Lifecycles

This is a life-cycle of a typical domain name, from registration to deletion. For simplicity, we assume that the domain name was registered on Jan 1, 2008.

Jan 1, 2008 Domain registered ACTIVE/LOCKED
Mar 1, 2008 After 60 days, the domain can now be transferred to another registrar,
if desired.
Nov 1, 2008 We will start sending renewal notices around this time. ACTIVE/LOCKED
Jan 1, 2009 The domain has expired; Your domain will go ON-HOLD, which means your
website and email will no longer work; you can still renew your domain name for the regular price; you can no longer transfer the domain unless you renew first.
Feb 9, 2009 After 19 days, the domain will be dropped, to get the domain back after this point you have to pay the redemption fee. REDEMPTIONPERIOD
Mar 9, 2009 After 30 days, the domain can no longer be restored, the only way to get the domain back is to wait until it is dropped from the registry Of course anyone else can also register the domain at that time. PENDINGDELETE
Mar 16, 2009 After 5 days, the domain is dropped from the central registry and can now be registered by anyone on first come first serve bases. If the domain is valuable or has lots of traffic it will be snapped up seconds after it has dropped.
